BDHOME, a leading omnichannel retailer of innovative and affordable home decor in China, and Dassault Systèmes announced at the Kitchen & Bath China 2015 expo in Shanghai that they are partnering to revolutionize the home decoration industry in greater China with unique consumer experiences that extend beyond the showroom and into the home.

To support this initiative, the two companies will create a joint venture that will accelerate the adoption of Dassault Systèmes’ 3DEXPERIENCE platform by the home furniture and decoration markets.

The joint venture combines the expertise of Dassault Systèmes in transformative digital solutions and of BDHOME in creative business models for high-quality, affordable home decor, to provide powerful 3D technologies that bring a new level of quality to the showroom experience.

Specifically, the joint venture will distribute Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA brand of applications for smart, 3D space planning solutions in mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.

It will develop related 3D content, services and experiences for furniture manufacturers such as virtual furniture and catalogues targeting furniture customization, construction and decorating materials.

Consumers can use the 3DVIA HomeByMe online interior design application to visualize and customize ideas for home decor or remodeling projects in 3D, and bring showrooms into their homes for a personalized decorating experience.

“With increasing demands for personal consumption from Chinese consumers, ‘customer experience’ has become a priority for each furniture manufacturer and retailer in terms of product production and sales,” said Mr. Chen Zaochun, President, BDHOME.

“Dassault Systèmes’ 3DVIA provides 3D virtual space, numerous decoration catalogues and fashion-tracking styles so that Chinese consumers can use their imaginations to build a home that belongs to them, and enjoy the amazing experience of decorating it. As the competition in the furniture market grows even fiercer, through its partnership with Dassault Systèmes, a global leader in 3D technology, BDHOME hopes to offer core competitiveness to furniture manufacturers while fostering better values for customers through the development of excellent customer experience.”

“Home design holds a very special place in Chinese culture—where a long history of ancestral tradition in furniture manufacturing blends art, customs and know-how—and, together with BDHOME, our ambition is to help designers and consumers reveal and unleash their creativity by combining a traditional approach to home and office decoration with the new standards of today’s society,” said Bernard Charlès, President & CEO, Dassault Systèmes.

Realistic Simulation Supports Expansion of the London Underground

By Akio

Dubbed “one of the most complex tunneling projects in the U.K.,” the Bond Street Station Upgrade (BSSU) project is being carried out to satisfy growing traffic demands within London’s busiest shopping district, the West End.

Upon its completion, Bond Street Station’s daily passenger numbers are expected to rise from 155,000 to 225,000.

A project this complex in nature has to consider the existing tunnel infrastructure, as well as the stress and strains imposed by the surrounding soil layers for the development of new tunnels.

Dr. Sauer and Partners was contracted to provide such tunneling expertise. The company took on responsibility for preliminary-to-detailed design and construction on all BSSU sprayed concrete lined (SCL) tunnels.

Using FEA simulation, they were able to virtually test the ground through which the tunnels are being dug alongside the existing tunnel structures.

This realistic assessment enabled them to improve upon the preliminary design, as well as bring greater confidence to the overall approval process.

To learn more, read the case study, “Tunnel Vision” to see how realistic simulation plays an important role in tunnel excavation.

We also encourage you to download the whitepaper by Ali Nasekhian, Sr. Tunnel/Geotechnical engineer at Dr. Sauer and Partners, which highlights the merits and shortcomings of large 3D models in tunneling.
